Preparing to Teach

Preparing to step into the classroom at the beginning of a semester requires instructors to consider a plethora of issues that impact both the teaching approach and learning activities of a course. Example considerations include: how to develop course content, organizing content in a manageable way, and choosing strategies that will align assessment and evaluation methods with course objectives. Additionally, determining how to make learning accessible, writing well-constructed assignments and exams, and creating a syllabus that is inclusive and learner-centered. It is also essential to consider how you will build rapport with students and support their learning, starting on the first day of class.
